Well as lovely as it was... Thanksgiving is over and now it is Friday and so I will add the answers to Five Question Friday. If you'd like to play along, just click on the button above and find out the details and join in the fun! You will find Mama M there, and she is getting anxious for Christmas. Link up so we can all share our answers to the five questions Mama M has asked us.
1. Do you do a real or fake Christmas tree?
Although I love the smell of real Christmas trees, I have done fake trees for many years now. And have even gone to a tall thin tree to save room. The smaller trees are so much easier for this Grandma to manage.
2. What is your favorite Christmas tradition with your family?
We change things up and don't really have traditions,...but I love going to Christmas Eve services and really thinking about the gift of Jesus! I love the music and the candlelight too.
3. Do you celebrate Thanksgiving in your neck of the woods? And, if so...how many calories do you think you consumed yesterday?
We did our dinner on Saturday, and there was so much food we have been eating on it for days now. I don't know how many calories but I am thinkin' maybe a Gazillion!
4. Have you started decorating for Christmas, yet?
I sent my hubby to Wal-Mart yesterday for more lights for the tree. It seems like every year we find lights that don't work. Anyway I hope to do the decorating today or tomorrow. It is a lot of work, but I love the outcome.
5. What is your favorite Christmas cookie?
When I was a kid my mama used to make little shortbread balls with pecan pieces inside and they were rolled in powdered sugar. They were my favs...but now I am allergic to nuts so I just eat shortbread without the pecans. They are yummy.
May the love of Jesus fill your hearts this Christmas!
